Madrid - 3 days

Madrid is the kind of city that you either love or hate. I Love! I do not like to compare it to Barcelona, ​​they are different proposals and different cities. Barcelona is more agitated, is younger, has beach, has GaudíHas modernism. Madrid is frantic, is more serious, has palace, has Reina Sofia and the Prado Museum, is one of the most beautiful parks in Europe (Del Retiro Park). That is - impossible to compare! Just going to draw their own conclusions.

Madrid is the kind of city that can be done in a day if you are too hasty and think you can see everything without delving into anything. Or in two or three days depending on your style, if you want to enter the Royal Palace, visit the Prado Museum and the Reina Sofia book three quiet days for the city is willing to give up something you might be able to fit it all in two days.

II leaves one baffled by the accuracy of each stone, which together make up the more than 160 arches that cross all the city's main square. If this is not enough to convince you to spend an entire day in the city perhaps the Alcázar and the imposing Cathedral of Segovia convince you.

Talvez eu te pegue pelo estômago. Fica, não vai ter bolo, mas vai ter Cochinillo Assado, um prato típico segoviano. Não saia de lá sem provar. 😉

  1. Oi, tudo bem?
    Gostaria de saber se podia me ajudar a montar um roteiro de 15 dias saindo e voltando por Madrid, alugando um carro, passando por lugares charmosos. Pensamos a princípio pelo norte da espanha ou por perto de Madrid. Estamos abertos a opiniões. Gostei bem dos seus post, mas é um pouco de cada coisa que eu queria. Não sei se trabalha com montagem de roteiros, ou se poderia me indicar alguém. Somos um casal. Não gostamos de Barcelona. Preferimos interior e coisas simples seguidas de ruinas e castelos. Vamos em Maio de 2019.
